Growing homeownership among millenials is one of the major factors driving the adoption of home automation systems.Modern IoT-based home automation solutions can learn about user habits and determine patterns using complex algorithms through cloud computing.For instance, the latest smart thermostat from Google Nest (US) utilizes learning features to automatically adjust the house temperature according to the homeowner’s preference.IoT is integrated with cloud computing as the data can be stored online (on the cloud) and can be accessed from anywhere.As present consumers continue to seek smart home devices that emphasize compatibility and functionality, companies have to develop technologies that allow for a unified control interface that can connect previously isolated devices and protocols.Single apps or platforms are being developed that give consumers the ability to integrate and control all of their devices with a single interface, which greatly enhances user convenience.
